Well I WOULD be using the "Nerds like us" quote by John Green but Teen Ink just can't have that, now can't they?

I am from Molly Moon and Roald Dahl
From goodnight kisses and midnight snacks
Gentle voices behind closed doors
Whispering pages under pillowcases

I’m from Jack Johnson and Taylor Swift
Running down the hall in sprints of delight
Sitting still in temple singing loudly as I dare
Giggles erupting from half-moon mouths

I am from Grandpa Joe
A piece of his soul in my pocket
Safely kept among candy wrappers and loose change
He is with me always

I am from Le Petite Canard and the Island
Cows and concrete
All a jumble in my heart
Crushing each other peacefully

I’m from the rainy days
The misplaced sock
Warbling a tune no one else can hear
Winking in the mirror: super-mega-foxy-awesome-hot

I am from making friends and losing them
Unmet expectations,
A piece of steel in my chest
Easily replaced with matches

I’m from trills and keys
The round bass of pounding drums
Creating my face from the reflections in the mirror
Wondering which Josephine will be here today

I’m from self-awareness
The cast of Landmark Forum
Doing what I love because I love it
This is me
